The Body Shop makes some of favorite body butters, and while I love the fresh, fruity scrubs that they make, I am always looking for ideas to cut down on the work involved - you know, scrubbing, moisturizing, it's all too tiring :P  Anyway, I found an easy solution in the Body Shop Shea Butter Body Scrub - a great-smelling scrub that combines the gentle exfoliating power of salt and sugar with the superbly moisturizing shea butter.

The Body Shop Shea Butter Body scrub is a creamy, yummy scrub that's rich in oils and so perhaps best suited for the dry-skinned girls.  It's also a very gentle scrub - the salt granules are very fine and the sugar granules are just too big to be too harsh - perfect for sensitive skins.  To use, scoop a generous amount of the scrub and apply to damp skin.  The shea butter and soybean/sunflower/castor oil base makes this a perfect scrub to massage into the skin - would be ideal if someone else did it for you, but for the not-so-lucky-normals like me, we just have to do it ourselves :D  Wash off with warm water and towel dry for perfectly moisturized skin!  I say "perfectly moisturized," but that's because I have very dry skin and I prefer light oils rather than lotions for my skin.  Normal skins might find this a little on the oilier side, but it does get absorbed after a bit.  The fabulous scent stays on the skin for a quite a while.

Overall, I find this a great product, especially for a dry/sensitive-skinned person looking to streamline the daily skincare routine.  I do find it a trifle oily, not something I am complaining about for my skin, but it does tend to leave the bath tub slippery (I just wash off the surface with soapy water, but it's something to keep in mind if you are prone to slipping).
